BOISE, Idaho -
Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien
was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week Monday, following his standout performance in Boise State's record-setting 62-7 victory over UConn on Saturday.
It is the second such honor of Rypien's career, and the first since Oct. 10, 2016.
Rypien contributed to Boise State's single-game record 818 yards of total offense by completing 21-of-28 passes for 362 yards and three touchdowns. Even more incredible is the fact that Rypien did his damage in just over a half of action, as his second-half workload consisted of just one play: a 74-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Richardson
on the first play from scrimmage of the third quarter.
It was Rypien's second-straight 300-yard game to open the campaign, and, as the 16th of his career it brought him into a tie with Kellen Moore (2008-11) for most all-time at Boise State.
Saturday, Boise State scored in all eight drives with Rypien at the helm, getting six touchdowns and a pair of field goals.
No. 17/17 Boise State heads to Stillwater, Okla., this week for Saturday's clash at No. 24/19 Oklahoma State.
